This weekend was Hermitting Weekend and I PLANNED on getting lots of stitching time...but you know how that goes!
I did manage to get in a few stitches on my
Lizzie*Kate ABC's of Parenting Friday night.
I have tried to use the sewing machine a few times this week. It really tried to make me quit...and I gave up lots of times but I would just come back the next day! It tried to get the best of me but I FINALLY won out!
This is a piece that I stitched many years ago and I found it when I was going thru some stash out in the garage and decided to make it my "practice" piece. With money being tight at the moment (still not working) I took a shirt back out of the bag I have set aside for donations and cut out a piece of material for the back. I stitched and stitched on the sewing machine only to have the thread break, come out of the needle, jam up in the bobbin or just plain and simple - not be in the piece once I was "finished" stitching it!
Then Saturday I decided to try it one more time! It took me 90 minutes but I finally got the three sides stitched up, then I stuffed it and did my version of a whip stitch to close it up. Then I held it up to look at it and lo and behold - the hanger I put on it...ended up on the inside!
LOL Oh well stitch and learn!
This weekend is also TUSAL weekend!
Here are my orts! Lots of pretty pinks this time.
Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching,
see ya next week with another faithful update!
